You can also use the Microsoft's Volume Activiation Management Tool (   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff686876.aspx ) to tell you what type of key is being used.

You need to tell nirisoft which ip address or computer name of the remote computer as produkey will not automatically scan the network for the remote computer.

Besides, you need to enable the file and printer sharing of the remote computet.
